Historical tour to Betley

Get your dance cards out, boys and girls, and mark down the date Monday April 16th at 10am for another wonderful history tour with the Goldfields Historical and Arts Society.
There will be a fab sight-seeing tour lead by the ever-knowledgable historian John Tully of in and around Betley - which was originally a farming area named Middlebridge and was named such as it was in the middle of crossing places to everywhere else.
Transport will be the usual combination of community bus and private cars meeting outside the Dunolly Museum, BYO picnic lunch (save time and pick up a scrumptious ham & salad roll from Dunolly Bakery!) and there may be a small charge for the day.
Contact John Tully for bookings & further details 0428178669


  1. I'm curious about Middlebridge now. Is there also an Upper and Lower bridge?
    Ha Ha.
    I'm looking forward to seeing the photos you'll be taking.

  2. Some day, Jayne, I would love to go on an historical tour with you.

  3. How far into history do you stretch back to?

    Would love to do the trip, but,the trip from Budgewoi and back is about 3,000 klms,as the crow flies that is.

  4. LOL River :P

    It would be more hysterical than historical, Debby *snort*

    How far back do I stretch...?
    I've been told I'm beyond carbon dating so I can't exactly say, Vest :P
